Although Professor Pares Is a Russian scholar of note, his efforts as a correspondent are regarded as amateur ish. Even the London papers, which often allow' their representatives to write in the first person singular, rebel against Professor Fares' description of bis trip to the Polish front, during which all of his meals appear to be religiously chronicled. Whenever the professor tells of what he has oaten, his fare is printed in black faced type in the Ixmdon papers. Thus when the casual reader picks up the pro fessor's articles his eyes are arrested by such heavy-typed phrases as "a plain meal without any alcohol;” ‘‘lunched on bread and milk;’ ‘‘ate more bread and milk,” “a cottage dinner,” “drank ten with the battalion commander," "white bread and chocolate.” “we lunch.” “cakes and tea.” This is not done with a. view to offend ing the sensibiltles of the professor, but by way of protest to the war department, which keeps all correspondents not only out of the British lines and Ijase camps in France and Flanders, but also out of the military areu$ in England. Only tyros, it is charged, are allowed to describe camp and battle scents for the British public. The latest eyewitness to be chosen Is Sir Max Aitken for the Canadian forces. Sir Max is known us a business man who acquired a fortune in Canada andjfater won a. seat in Parliament In England, where he is the right hand man of Bonar Law. He has never taken part in anv military organizations nor done any de scriptive writing for the press. A Pessimistic Youngster From Judge.

FIELD HOSPITALS Blue Cross Society Saves Unnecessary Wastage of Horse Flesh Enndon, February 20.—(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)—-The horses at the front have disease to face as well ns bullets. Efforts are now being made in the western line to check an epidemic of glanders. Only animals free from the disease are admitted to the Blue Cross hospitals, established In Franco by the English Dumb Friends’ league. These hospitals have all the work they can handle ns It Is. Besides the work of mercy, tho society saves an unneces sary wastage of horse flesh. Roy Horniman, sent on n tour of In spection In France by the Blue Cross society, describes his Impressions of one of tho horse hospitals ns follows: “The first noticeable feature of the hos pital was Its exquisite cleanliness. Tho farm buildings used as wards were white washed and disinfected. 1 noticed tho same neatness In the pharmacies and tho staff looked spick and span m their white uniforms. “On entering tho first ward something caught my throat. The sight of this lino of patient veterans, standing still and silent, in the dim light, had something ac cusing in It. T felt awe as l thought of the ordeal through which these heroea had passed, and l am not. ashamed to nay that 1 raised my hat.” He reports that the majority of case* are deep and painful saddle cuts and sabre and bullet wounds are in the mi nority. One of the. most skillful veterinarians In the hospital is a woman who belongs to a well known English family, ami there are women In tne other Blue Cross hospitals as well.
